Break into PE with accounting background
Hi Guys, I know questions related to break into PE have been discussed a million times. Sorry if my question has been asked before.
I read some discussions about transaction service (financial due diligence) at Big Four -> PE. It seems pretty challenging considering the percentage of people in TS eventually getting there. One reply to a previous thread mentioned it typically needs a MBA after TS to PE in U.S. (unnecessary in London, though )
My question is:
Has anyone seen people move across within a PE fund from operational/accounting to investment?
Which way has a better chance, operational/accounting role at PE to PE investment or TS at Big Four to PE?
If the above two have similar chances, it would make more sense to move within a PE fund since the pay at TS big four sucks a lot.
